June 15, 2017

TOKYO - Nikon Corporation will celebrate the 100th Anniversary of its establishment on July 25th of this year. In celebration of this event, Nikon and Swarovski, one of the world's leading crystal brands, have collaborated to create the Nikon 100th Anniversary Crystal Creation Nikon Model I, a unique crystal reproduction, to be sold at Nikon directly managed stores.

In 1948, the Nikon Model I, which was accomplished using the most advanced optical technologies of the time and represented the starting point for Nikon cameras, was released. To commemorate this first Nikon camera, Swarovski® has created a beautiful, nearly full-scale, crystal reproduction of the Nikon Model I. Precise attention to detail has been paid with this crystal reproduction, created to celebrate Nikon's 100th Anniversary. The corporate logo from 1948 can be found on the top of the reproduction, and even the applicable text has been engraved around the lens portion.
